Macro Reports

I have the following fields in a table.
-JobNo (primary key)
-Assessor (combo box containing only two names to choose from ie. John,
Bill)
I have created two seperate reports which have exactly the same content
except that they have a different electronic signatures respective of the
person chosen from the Assessor combo box.
ie. Rpt_John and Rpt_Bill
To produce these reports, I currently have two macro's (one for each of the
two assessors) in a form (frm_main) whereupon clicking a particular macro
button (ie button named BILL), popup dialogue box (running a query....
qry_rpt_assesso r) asks for the JobNo. Upon entering the number, the report
is produced based on the info that the particular jobno contains respective
to the assessor.
My question is: How can I create a macro or code that when the user is in a
particular record (jobno) that a report will be produced based on info that
is already there ie jobno and the assessor foregoing the prompt. So with
one click of the macro button, the report will be produced without any input
from the user ie. the report being able to gather the information from the
current jobno that the user is in and the assessor's name that has populated
the Assessor field box.
thanks for any help.

Check out DoCmd.OpenRepor t in the help file. It has an argument called
WhereClause. Use it to enter something like:
"JobNo=" & Forms!MyForm!My JobNoControl

I have created a database that brings in a new table weekly. I then made a separate query for each sales rep and a separate report for each rep. (The reports are all identical but call different queries.) Lastly, I created a macro that sends the reports to the respective rep via e-mail with the push of a button. I am pleased with myself for getting this far but I realize the next step is figure out how to use one report (so I don't...

I currently have the tables set up and a separate query for each individual sales rep. I then created 10 reports and a macro that sends out the ten reports via e-mail to the correct reps. I need to clean this up and have only one report that uses each different query. Should I be using the Where clause? IF so how? I have tried a dozen different ways. The problem (and I knew this when I created the reports) is that one change then...

I'm looking for a method to enter and retain a start date and end date for use with a macro that runs 11 month-end reports that each require the same start date and end date. FYI- currently, the macro runs and requires entry for start and end dates for each report as it opens. Where no data is available, the macro informs of no data, requires acknowledgement, then proceeds to the next report.

Although some users find Macros simple and easy to use, there are some major limitations to using them. Although you can use macros to perform tasks, there is limited control on when and how those tasks should be performed, and setting conditions can be difficult. There is however, another even stronger reason not to use macros and that is that when errors are thrown during a macro's execution it is difficult to trap the error and therefore...

Greetings: I have been working on a database and have found a peculiar error.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
